MGA PAGHIHIGPIT NG BANSANG JAPAN UKOL COVID-19 PARA SA MGA PASAHERONG MANGGAGALING SA PILIPINAS

Maliban sa mga naunang paalala ng Embahada tungkol sa entry restrictions ng bansang Japan, mahigpit na pinapaalalahanan ang lahat ng mga sumusunod:

1. Ang validity ng lahat ng single o multiple-entry Japanese visa na na-issue nang 27 Marso o mas maaga ay suspendido.

2. Ang pre-clearance ng APEC Business Travel Cards ay suspendido.

3. Magkakaroon ng mas pinaigting na quarantine measures para sa pasaherong manggagaling ng Pilipinas. Halimbawa, ang lahat ng papasok sa bansang Japan mula sa Pilipinas ay kailangang sumailalim sa 14-day quarantine sa isang lugar na itatalaga ng mga quarantine officers ng ports of entry kung saan lumapag o dumaong ang naturang pasahero. Maliban dito, sila ay pagbabawalan ding sumakay sa anumang uri ng public transportation hanggang sa matapos ang 14-day quarantine period.

Kung kayo ay may balak na magtungo o bumalik ng Japan, maaari lamang na gawin ang karampatang mga paghahanda nang naaayon sa naturang paalala.

Para sa karagdagang impormasyon, maari po lamang na magtanong sa MOFA o di kaya ay sa Embahada ng Japan sa Pilipinas.
